Alternate Monday Autumn Greeting meets Tis the Season

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Greetings:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 8-1/2 x 7, scored at 3-1/2

One extra card front: Whisper White 8-1/2 x 3-1/2

Mat: Real Red 6-1/8 x 3-1/4

DSP panel:  Tis the Season 6 x 3-1/8

Sentiment: Whisper White 7/8 x 5-1/4  punched on the end with the Banner Triple Punch

The details:

  • Stamp the floral image from the Autumn Greeting stamp set onto Whisper White card stock with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink
  • Color the image with your Stampin Blends as follows:
  • Large flowers: Real Red
  • Oak leaves: Shaded Spruce
  • Maple Leaves: Granny Apple Green
  • Dahlia: Light Gray Granite
  • Wheat: Real Red
  • Eucalyptus: Old Olive
  • Berries: Cherry Cobbler
  • Pumpkin: Light Pumkin Pie then cover the front of the pumpkin with a bit of Gold Stickles (use anything gold metallic that you have in your stash)
  • When you have the image colored you can cut it  out with the Autumn Essentials Dies (I did not have the die so I fussy cut the image out)

The sentiment:

  • Stamp your Sentiment using the saying from the For Unto Us stamp set
  • Ink the image  in Versa Mark Ink
  • Use Gold Emboss Powder over the sentiment and then heat set the image with your heat tool

Putting the card together:

  • Wrap a piece of Real Red ribbon from All the Trimmings  Ribbon pack around the card front panel
  • Attach this panel to the front of the card
  • Adhere the DSP panel to the Real Red mat
  • Attach the Real Red/DSP panel to the front of the card centering it
  • Attach your floral image to the front left of the card with Dimensionals
  • Tuck your sentiment on the front of the card with Glue Dots

Finishing details:

  • Adhere a Real Red bow from All the Trimmings Ribbon Pack to the top of the left hand side of the floral image with a Glue Dots
  • Add a few Gilded Gems here and there on the front of the card and you are finished
